Richland Parks and Recreation Present a ReVamped Fall Carnival (Photo) - 10/09/20

Richland Parks and Recreation with the help of HAPO Community Credit Union are proud to present a week-long re-Vamped Fall Carnival. The week of October 26 through the 30 brings free, drive-up “Scary in a Sack” give-a-ways, pumpkin carving and pet costume contests, Spooktacular science experiments, and “scary” children’s stories, all virtually. There will also be plenty of opportunities to win prizes. The festivities will draw to a close on Friday, with a double matinee of Halloween classics playing on an outdoor screen for only $5 per movie (includes a bag of kettle corn), per carload. 

Beginning Monday, October 19, Richland residents will have the opportunity to reserve a “Scary in a Sack” Halloween starter-pack for their family. Reservations will open for non-Richland residents the following day. There are 1,000 “Scary in a Sacks” to give away. Each sack includes two pumpkins, a decorating kit, treats, and a children’s book donated by the Reading Foundation. To help control traffic, the sacks will be distributed to each vehicle at the day and time frame they have registered for.

Duportail & Keene Intersection Moves to 4-Way Stop on Monday (Photo) - 10/02/20

Construction to improve Duportail Street at the intersection of Keene continues. Beginning on Monday, October 5, through Wednesday, October 7, the traffic signal will be replaced with a four-way stop so crews can work on expanding the intersection to accommodate additional turn lanes.

In the interim, they will install a temporary traffic signal that should be activated on Thursday, October 8. The temporary traffic signal will allow near-normal traffic flow for the remaining duration of the project. Near the end of the project, a new permanent traffic signal will be installed and activated. Pedestrians and bicycles are urged to use extra caution around this area.

When complete, the intersection will include the addition of a second left-turn lane from Keene onto Duportail and a right turn lane from Duportail onto Keene.

This project increases the lanes and signal capacity at the Duportail Street and Keene Road Intersection. Overall the project will improve intersection performance and corridor safety.
